My browser has started acting strangely. I can't enter text in windows, search bars, etc.. aside from space and backspace. I'm using a different browser to type this. If I remove/reinstall, I have functionality until the next boot, then I can't type again. Very perplexing. Ive tried removing all private data in case it's some kind of cached setting and completely deleting the install folder, no success. I really really REALLY don't want to switch to a different browser, but I'm tired of uninstalling/reinstalling. Any assistance would be appreciated (aside from telling me to upgrade to the newest version, I'm on this one for a reason).

There are always going to be fanboys, and stooges (who usually work FOR the company) posting opinions online flaming those who aren't happy with the latest, not-necessarily-greatest product. There are also going to be disgruntled users and stooges working for opposing products badmouthing the current product. I still feel compelled to express my opinion about opera. I started using so long ago (1998? 1999?) I don't remember the version. It was streamlined, loaded MUCH faster than internet exploiter, and had some great features. Unfortunately it seems as if the latest versions have been introducing changes just for the sake of change, or to make it easier to support more changes in the future. I saw a post somewhere claiming that 95% of opera users dont use bookmarks, which I find extremely hard to believe. I'm staying on 12 because I DO use bookmarks. Of course there are other reasons, too many to list, but the fake statistic justifying the removal of bookmarks is a great example of why many aren't happy with the direction opera is taking. Im not going to call it "Nope-era", like some have done. I just think whomever is deciding upon the direction this browser is taking may want to consider at least leaving the functionality of some of the features of older browswers. Have them disabled by default, but allow us to re-enable them.
